We stayed at the Aldridge Guest House last month for a weekend getaway. The house and grounds are beautiful and the breakfast and chocolate chip cookies were delicious! Our bedroom was a little small and lacked a tv, but both the bed and bathrooms were spotless. The hosts are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the property and Galena. I would...

Hello and thanks for sharing your review! It was a pleasure meeting you and your sister-in-law and being part of your time away together.

Robert & Douglas made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. They are dedicated to each and every guest as if they are family. We would definitely stay again.

We are a great place for first time B&B travelers as we tend to break a lot of the stereotypes of what a bed and breakfast is - there are no doilies, fake flowers, lace covered windows, or crazy wallpaper all over the place. What you will find is a renovation that highlights the architecture, a livably elegant atmosphere, great...

My daughter and I stayed here for an overnight getaway to Galena and she has not ever stayed in a B&B. The home is lovely with antiques and Douglas and Robert were so full of information and details about the home and the changes over the years. We stayed in the alcove bedroom which is in the original part of...
